THE GOVERNMENT AND ITS OPPONENTS. Party strife, in matters political, is com- mon to all countries under the sun where anything in the shape of constitutional government exists. There are Conservatives and Liberals, Rights and Lefts, or by what- ever distinctive names they may be desig- nated, in the French Chamber, the German Reichstag, the Spanish Cortes, and the Legislative Assemblies of our Colonies as well as in the British Parliament. These hostile parties are so strongly attached to the opposite policies they support that, when one of them is in office," the great effort of the other is to drive them out again. The struggle lies between ins and outs, outs and ins. When fairly waged, in an open and straightforward manner, this hostility of parties keeps the political life of the country in a healthful state, insures the thorough shifting of measures that are in- troduced into Parliament ^before they become law, and prevents Ministries, to whichever party they belong, from yielding to the temptation of seeking to conduct public affairs with too high a hand. It is necessary, above all things, for the sake of the poli- tical healthfulness to which we have referred, that the fighting should be fair, and that no attempt should be made to undermine the stability of the Government in power by statements or charges purport- ing to be true when they are only surmises or inventions. But fairness is not always a characteristic of the tactics of the Tory party when it is the Liberals who are directing and controlling the destinies of the nation. The active spirits of the party do not stick at trifles in trying to excite among the constituencies a feeling of distrust in the stability of the Government. An example of this style of reprehensible tactics was recently afforded by a high-class London Conservative journal, which more than insinuated that there are irreconcilable differences between the Whig and Radical elements in the Cabinet, and that it was im- possible, accordingly, that it could cohere for any length of time, although the Prime Minister himself might be regarded as a compound of Whiggism and Radicalism. But the fact is, that the very thing charac- terized as an element of weakness is an element of strength. It would have created dissatisfaction among the advanced Liberals throughout the country if there had been too great a preponderance of Whig members in the Ministry; but the Premier has done his best to balance the two forces, and the composition of the Cabinet gives now the impression of greater strength and durability than it had at any previous time since Mr Gladstone re- turned to the head of affairs. The members of the Cabinet have a sufficiently strong sense of their responsibility to know how to bear and how to forbear. It is absurd to imagine, or try and make it be believed, that Lord Derby will not find it possible to listen quietly to the suggestions of Sir Charles l)illce, or that Mr Chamberlain will loose all patience with the caution enjoined in the counsels of the Marquis of Hartington. If the member for Chelsea had felt that there was no likelihood of much agreement be- tween himself and lord Derby at Cabinet meetings he would not have felt inclined to change from the Under-Secretary ship of Foreign Affairs to the Presidency of the Local Government Board. All the members of the Ministry, whether Whig or Radical, agree in the general policy which the Government has pursued, is pursuing, and intends to pursue, and there is no ground whatever for insinuating the existence of differences, or predicting speedy disintegra- tion. The truth is that the Liberal party in Parliament, though it consists of what I are thought to be two separate sections, is really more united than the Conservative party is at the present moment. There were indications, during the supplementary autumnal session, that it was all at "sixes and sevens for want of a competent leader of the Opposition in the House of Commons. There was no love lost between Sir Stafford Northeote and Lord Randolph Churchill, and yet both of them had their backers and fol- lowers. In the House of Lords last seson a similar want of harmony was ex- hibited, as tho Conservative peers showed no inclination to be led—wherever he wished them to go -by the Marquis of Salisbury. The restiveness of the Conservatives in the Upper House arises from th o imperiousness of the head of the party, and in the House of Commons from th want of thoroughness and decision shown by the leader of the Op- position. At th9 beginning of the supple- mentary session £ Lord Randolph Churchill manifested a decided inclination to "take the bit between his teeth and to have his own way but though he subsequently sub- sided into a quieter mood, there is no saying what renewed efforts he may put forth in the ensuing session, now close at hand, "to shunt Sir Stafford Northcote to the back- ground. The want of harmony among the Conservatives w?s also apparent by the con- troversial papers, written by leading members of that party, which appeared in one of the chief monthly reviews. This condition of I disagreement, which does not exist amon^ the Liberals, arises n-ituralty and inevitably from the wa.nt of a distinctive policy on the part of the Conservatives, except wha.t consists in decrying whatever their opponents say and do. The existing dis- PP c) agreements among the Conservatives are "I m also a s:gp. that the party was considerably 3 demoralized by the unexpected defeat inflicted upon it at the last general election —a defeat from which it has not yet quite recovered. In order to assist this recovery and to restore harmony it is rec^ssa^y that the party should be kept in a hopeful frame of mind and this helps t) account for the attempts being made to represent the Liberal Government as being liable to dissolution at any moment from internal differences of opinion. The writers and speakers who take this cue are wise enough in their generation to be aware that in order to produce harmony it is necessary to create a feeling of hopefulness. The Outs will cease to quarrel among them- selves, and will join hand in hand in close amity when they have an impression that they are speedily to become the Ins. If an opposite impression were allowed to prevail, the disagreements would be apt, not only to continue, but to grow embittered, and the local associations might lapse into a spirit of listlessness which would not prove beneficial to the Conservative causa when another general election did at last come round. All the organizations are more likely to be kept in good working order, ready for action, when there is the possibility of a Ministerial crisis occurring any day. But if any expectation of this kind —engendered by the misleading insinuations or statements of ingenious journalists— exists in the minds of Conservatives it is utterly delusive, though entertaining, and may help to keep them in better spirits. The Gladstone Government was never more stable or secure than it is at the present moment, as it enjoys the full confidence of the great majority of the electors through- out the United Kingdom. The desire is general and strong that it shall continue in power, and until thosa great measures of political, municipal, and social reform are brought forward and carried through Par- liament, which have been under promise for some time, and of which the country stands greatly in need, the constituencies know well enough that it is in vain for them to look for any such measures from a Conser- vative Government. The extension of the household franchise to counties, accompanied by a redistribution of seats, would not be undertaken by the Conservatives, though it was Mr Disraeli who obtained the credit of conferring household suftrage upon the boroughs. But he would never have done so had his hand not been forced by the reso- lute attitude of the Liberal party in the House of Commens. Household franchise in boroughs, however, is one thing, and household franchise in the counties is another thinir, so far as the Conservatives are concerned. They might assist in establishing the one when cajoled into it by a chief whom they always implicitly obeyed; but the extension of the same- franchise to the counties is something that they will be prepared to resist with might and main. In their estimat:on its certain effeetwoald be to diminish their territorial influence on the occasion of general I elections, and thereby to weaken the power of the party. Whether, as regards the franchise, the land question, the reform of countty government, or the creation of a grea metropolitan municipality, it is above all things desirable that the Liberal I Government shall continue to have the guidance and control of public affairs.
FLINTSHIRE ASSIZES. The business of these assizes was commenced on Wednesday in the County Hall, Mold, before Lord Chief Justice Coleridge. In charging the grand jury, his lordship said he was happy to tell them, as he had told all the grand juries whom he had addressed in that circuit, that tho actual business before them was small. There were only two cases, and neither would present any great difficulty in point of law. It seemed to him that the amount of both criminal and civil business was exceedingly light in the six places he had visited, considering the trouble and expense, and to sime extent the inconvenience, of an assize, He must say this, however, without exDressing any opinion or drawing any conclusion, that the whole of the cases he had had to deal with since he left London had been cases of importance—cases in which the crime was great or the mischief done considerable, or they were matters which could not well be tried by any but judges of the superior courts. Whether it might be possible to tako the business together at some one place he would not give an opinion, because in a picturesque country like Wales, where communication was interrupted by mountains and places were difficult of access, the difficulty attending the ceutralizatiou of busi- ness would no doubt be great. The two cases which would that ddjjr occupy the attention of the grand jury were both cases of importance. One, a case of highway robbery with violence, would present no difficulty whatever, but the other a case of murder, was rather a curious one. There could be no doubt in the world that the prisoner was the man who fired the prun which killed I the deceased, but the evidence given t the magisterial inquiry did net afford them much light as to why or under what circumstances the gun was fired. Fortunately, however, in tHs case the evidence of the wife at the corouer's inquisi- tion helped them to arrive somewhat at a decision. Her evidence might not alter the legal character of the case, but it certainly did the moral aspect of the affair. That evidence, however, could not by the rules of EaqliEb law be-laid Wore them but if true, he would endeavour to h ve it brought out in cross-examination or in somw other way.
ALLEGED HIGHWAY ROBBERY. Oliver Swindley, 19, Wm. Ha^es, 18, John Jones, 21, and Thomas George, 24, liboorers, were indicted for having assaulted Thomas Highland, another labourer, 'employed at Messrs Smith auu Mawdsley's works, Flint, on the 17th of last December, and stclen from him a watch and chain, a felt oat, and a pocket handkerchief. The defence set up was that the whole of the parties were drunk and had a fair stand-up fight, and that no rabbery had been committed. A number of witnesses were called on both sides, and the jury found the prisoners "Not guilty."
THE HOLYWELL MURDER. William Roberts, 36, stonemason, was indicted for the wilful murder of Edward Thomas, a col- lier, at Holywell, on the 4th of N, vember. Mr Morgan Lloyd, Q.C., M.P., and Mr Bonks ap- peared for the prosecution; the prisoner beine; defended by Mr E. 'Swetenham, Q.C., and Mr Marshall. Mr Morgan Lloyd, in opening the case, said the I prisoner, wI; > was married in May last, lived in a cottage at i place called Pea-y-b.d Mountain, within a few yards of the road leading to Holywell. Tlio decasod had lived with his brother, both being 1 colliers fit Ba »'llt, about two mile. from Holywell. 0:1 Saturday i.oght, November 4, the deceased and his brother started from Bagillt between eight and nine o'clock at with the intenti .-a o £ going t: Holywell. They went to several public-houses on the way, and arrived between ten and eleven o'clock at the public-house cn the Yoli leading ■ from liolywell to Pen-y-bal Mou) tir,and at eleven o'c'o k, that be.og fio c'osii-g time, they had to leave. Along this road to Peu-y-bo.l Mountain were some few cottages scattered ab ut, a:d amongst these was the cottage where the prisoner lived. The deceased and his brother -.at in tae direction of the prisoner's houe. and Edward Thomas, the deceased, left his brother in the road and went up to the prisoner's house. He did not appear to have entered it, however, but timply went up the door or window, and stood there for a lew minutes. He then went back to his b-other, and remained with him for about ten mfnutes. He again went up to the prisoner's house, and once more returned to his brother without entering the house. For the third time he went up to the house and returned without entering He and his brother then seemed to have deter- mined to go down to Holywell. After going for a short distance they heard footsteps behind them, and waited to see who it was, in order to have company :to HolyweF. The prisoner then came up to them, and asked in Welsh, "WhÜ do you want here, vou devils?" To which the ue-'eased man replied, "Nothing, my lad." The prisoner, in reply to this, said, Yes, you do; and I would not mind a bit shooting you." He had a gun in his hand, and lilting it to his shoulJer he held the barrel in the usual way with his left hand, with his finger on the trigger. Before he could fire, however, the prisoner's wife rushed up to him and took hold of his left arm ani endeavoured to pull him back. She did not to have produced any effect, for immediate! she went up the gun was fired, and Edward Thomas fell dowr, and in the course of a few minnt-é1 he WAS a dead man, having been shot through the heart and liver. The cause of the crime was suggested to have been jealousy, the prisoner's wife before her marriage having kept house for the deceused and hi:, brother, and it WHS con- I jectured that th«y or nt least the deceased, went to the prisoner's house for the pur- pose of seeing his wire, b-t whether that was^so or not .he could not say. Thomas Thomas, brother of the deceased, bore out the opening statement as t) the visit to the neighbourhooof the prisoner's house, the con- ver.-atioz; which took place between the prisoner and deceased, and detailed the circurrstliiceg pre- ceding and following the shooting of his brother. In reply to Mr Swetenham, in cross-examination, the witness said the gun went off the instant the prisoner's wife jumped at his a-ms. In reply to a number of other questions as to his conduct and conversation after the death of his brother, he answered that he was so much frightened that he did act remember. Witness did not strike the prisoner with a bottle, nor did he see anyone else use i bottle that night. He did not kick the prisoner, nor did he knock his wife down. He did not see her near the house, nor did he see the prisoner until he came after them with a gun. He lcuew that the wife of the prisoner was examined before the coroner, but he did not know what sb said, nor had he asked anybody to toil him what she saiu. He kuew that her evidence appeared in the papers, in English, but he had never asked anybody "o reiid it to him. Bj the Judge I do not know now whht she s-id. The Judge: And do you expect the judge and jury to believe that ? Witness I cannot say, indeed (laughter). Police Constable M'Kinna stated that he received information of the murder from the deceased's brother, and went for a doctor, who pronounced life extinct: afterwards saw the prisoner appre- hended. He had no waistcoat, and accounted for this by spying that it had been torn off in a struggle. On the day after the murder he went up to the house, but could find no marks of a struggle. He saw a broken bottle near the window. He examined the face, saou'ders, arms, and hands of the prisoner, but could find no marks or scr-itches upon him. Superintendent Hughes, who apprehended the prisoner, gave similar evidence. This concluded the case for the prosecution. Mr Sweteuham, addressing the jury for the defence, said he could hardly address them as he ought, owing to the righteous indignation which he felt that the prisoner should be placed upon his trial owiag to the lying rascality "—for he could call it. nothing else—of the man Thomas Thomas. He was certainly :I.t going to ask the jury to reduce the offence to one of Jmanslaughter. He was going, instead, to suggest to them, and going tJ point out to them, step by step, thit they would net be able to come to any other conclusion except that the death of the deceased was the result of pure accident. He should ask them to believe that no morejdastardly attempt on any man's wife was ever made'than that attempted by the deceased and his brother Thomas Thomas upon Mrs Arn Roberts, and that in protecting his wife the prisor o fC ident-iJIy shot the deceased. At the close of Mr Swetenham's address the court adjourned until this morning.
